Super Suncatcher Glitter Paint Pens
Work great, run out fast
As a teacher and a mom I love crafts that minimize mess. These were perfect! My only complaint is that the pens ran out VERY quickly. Used with five kids at a birthday party -- each kid did 2-3 suncatchers and many of the pens were empty just from that small amount. I would still buy them again though.

I used this product with my kindergarten class when they came in for the conference. This was a wonderful activity and easy for them to do. Not much mess and the paint dried clear!

Came all dried out.
I bought 2 sets of these pens for my daughter's birthday party and was upset to find that when we opened them, all of the pens were dried out and were not usable. We had to improvise the party activities at the last second and send someone out to a craft store mid-party to purchase replacements. It was very disappointing and a bit stressful.
The upside- Oriental Trading's customer service agent, Alysha, was excellent and refunded me for the items immediately.

I bought these to use for 10-year olds at a birthday party and they did not work well at all. They wouldn't squirt forever and then when one finally did, it went everywhere and ruined one of our guest's shirt. Would not recommend.

Very disappointing! Do NOT buy theses!
Very disappointing! The paint was too difficult to squeeze out of the tubes. When it did come out it was in thick globs. There was no way to "paint" in the plastic sun catchers purchased for the students. The whole experience was just an "ordeal". I felt bad for the kids. They were so looking forward to painting the sun catcher race cars and butterflies! I have painted stain glass sun catchers for years in my classroom. I used paint brushes & paint cups & will do it that way again. It's a bit messy that way so, ....I thought the tubes would make for a neater & better experience for me & the kids...DEFINATELY NOT the case with these tubes!! Price seemed ok, but not when they ended up being useless!

15 of the 24 pens were either hard or not mixed up and came out clear. We were very disappointed in this product. I thought the pens would be easier to use for the children I was working with. It caused more headache with the majority of them not working. We should have stuck with the actual paints and paint brushes.

NOT happy with this purchase. .
I bought this for my sons Valentines Day party in school. these paints were horrible! they did not work at all. As we started cutting the tubes open hoping we could try to use brushes we found the paint was all gooped up and dried. Very disappointing as our project was painting sun-catchers.. we used regular markers instead which wasn't so great...
don't waste your money. I purchased 3 sets and NONE of them worked....

Awful. And Expensive.
Half these pens were dried up. Hidden cap inside the screwed on top caused explosions with second graders.
